“With her third place in the Tour de France, Katarzyna Niewiadoma completed the first of this year's two tasks. The second is the world championships in Australia," stressed Polish Cycling Federation sports director Waclaw Skarul.

 

"I haven’t had enough time to let it sink in but a top 3 in the Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift is something I’ve been dreaming of ever since I found out we were gonna have this race. This and the victory in the team standings makes me extremely happy and proud of my teammates,” Katarzyna Niewiadoma said. 

 

“I’ve been enjoying the first days with explosive climbs. That’s what I’ve been focusing on for most of my career, for the classics. And the last stages were about surviving and pushing ourselves to the limit. It definitely was one of the hardest races we’ve ever done. And it was amazing to see all the fans on the side of the road. We received a lot of energy it motivated us to go harder. The attention from social media and TV was also special. It was really nice to be in this position to give something to the public and that the public gives back to us," she added (letourfemmes.fr)
